Suggestions for Metal work/mod tools

Recommended Posts

Any suggestions for useful metal work/mod tools?

 

Kathy was asking me for suggestions for Father's day and I figured there are probably many things I need but didn't know I needed.

 

I do have a Nibbling tool that Schoondoggy have suggested and I just picked up a set of Aircraft Snips on sale at Menard.

 

I do have a Dremel-- saw some interesting Dremel accessories..........................

I always enjoyed having a Bridgeport milling machine

Or a Plasma torch is always handy

A small Craftsman or Atlas bench lathe is always nice to have too

Yes, I have plenty of Tape :)  Hole punch on order -- Amazon Prime should be here by Fri, thinking about Brake, I do need a micrometer.............

 

The Milling Machine, Plasma Torch, and Bench Lathe really look nice but I may need another degree to be able to use them :)  Haven't run them by Kathy yet................

The hole punch works REALLY nice -- thanks again Schoondoggy!!

 

I cut a blank piece of metal out the same size as my clear plastic template I had made -- taped the template to the metal and lined it up -- the holes in the plastic were 1/8" and it was easy to line up the 1/8" punch -- I could just feel it set when over the hole.

 

Punched all the screw mounting holes out -- then cut out 60mm hole for the fan -- and it all fit!!!!!!!

If you use your Dremel for getting into tight spots, the Flexshaft attachment can be nifty.

 

I like my Dremel, but it probably isn't the best metal-working tool out there compared to some of the nifty things SchoonDoggy and others get to play with.
